Homeless Memorial Day, December 21, 2017

The longest night of the year, Winter Solstice, is also the time we commemorate the members of our community who have died while homeless or for whom long-term homelessness was the main cause of their death. Long-term homelessness takes 25 or more years off the person's life expectancy. This is not surprising if you really consider the impact of sleeping rough, never sleeping well, along with the impacts of poor nutrition, the high likelihood of assault and brain injury, and all the other factors that are part of being without a home.
